2016 Spring Break Nationals turns 30

The mobile electronics event that kicks off the spring car audio selling season is on its way to celebrate its 30th year! On March 19 - 20, 2016, SBN EXPO Group will produce its annual event at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach Florida. “We’re thrilled to reach this milestone of the event that has served the industry for so long”, says event founder Paul Papadeas. “Every year, we offer Manufacturers, Distributors and Dealers the opportunity to come together at this industry institution to network, sharing information, training and consumer exposure. Our industry has changed over the years; we’ve modified and adapted the event to the contemporary needs of industry. The one thing that hasn’t changed is the need for continuing Dealer education and consumer exposure to our category. To do all this in a fun-filled environment is unique and I feel that we have that under wraps.”

The two-day event will host the most progressive brands in industry. “I’m thrilled that companies use SBN / ICE as their Southeast Mobile E trade show” says Papadeas, “it shows that they take stock in their Dealer’s success. Within the 30 years of our events, supporting brands have found the value of SBN/ICE coming face to face with Dealers and their customers, the networking opportunity is great.”. 

For 2016 SBN EXPO Group, LLC turns back the calendar on exhibiting costs to reflect those set over 2 decades ago. “Our goal, Papadeas said, “is to offer the best exposure for the brands that haven’t yet experienced the potential of our event and at the same time reward the dozens that have over our 30 years.” 

An Industry Gala is planned for the event’s Saturday night with details to come.

KMS Drift: AMS Georgia - Drift, SPL, Car Show Championship

The KMS Drift Cahmpionship made its second of four stops at the great Atlanta Motor Speedway, this time no record setting rain was in sight, but the heat was on. Drivers from four states showed up to get some much needed seat time and bake in the heat of the day. 3rd Gear Pulls were a must to tame the course layout for the event, however the drivers ran out of tires and energy before the set shut down around 7 o'clock. Congrats to all the Winners. The KMS Drift Championship will be back at AMS on September 15th, the…

R-Rydes With Team Honors at SPOCOM in Anaheim, CA

It's Saturday afternoon and I've been anxiously waiting for this day to arrive because I've had SPOCOM marked as a dot in iCal for over six months. After battling my way through the notorious Southern California traffic, while trying not to melt in the mid-July heat, I finally got to Orange County only to circle the city of Anaheim, ready to fist fight Disneyland goers for a $20 parking spot. The Will Call and Media lines for tickets wrap so far around the building, to the point that confusion kicks in of whether I'm going to a car show or…

Fitted Toronto 2015: Brampton, Ontario

Whether you’re static or on bags, poked or flush, Japanese, Euro or USDM, as long as you’re an enthusiast of the aggressive fitment movement, Fitted Lifestyle is the show for you. Yet again, the event took over the steel buildings of the Brampton Fairgrounds, as well as the vast outdoor parking lot, filling each to the brim.

This is true for both inside and outside and what makes Fitted such a unique event.…
